Watching The Hills in 2006 vs 2019

Before The Hills gifted us with the reboot The Hills: New Beginnings, I decided to binge watch the original, since it had been a while. I knew I’d be watching it from different eyes, since I was only 14 when the first season began. My, what a difference 13 years makes.

Watching The Hills in 2006:

“Wow, Lauren and Heidi are so cool and mature – they both have amazing jobs and can afford super nice things! I want to be like that!”

Watching The Hills in 2019:

“Wow, Lauren may be working an internship given to her by MTV, but at least she’s fully dedicated to it and is giving it her all. Heidi, you’re a giant baby. Be grateful for your network given job that most people spend years searching for, instead of complaining that you have to work from 9:30 – 5 daily. Also, can a TV network pay for a luxury apartment in Los Angeles for me?”

Watching The Hills in 2006:

“When I’m 21 I’m going to be living in a Malibu beachfront home with my boyfriend like Lauren and Jason!”

Watching The Hills in 2019:

*single, 27 year old me* “This apartment in West Hollywood fits my budget, but doesn’t have a kitchen.”

Watching The Hills in 2006:

“I hate Spencer. He’s mean to Heidi and Lauren.”

Watching The Hills in 2019:

“Spencer and Heidi’s relationship is an example of co-dependency. He thrives off the reactions that Heidi gives him. Heidi needs to feel loved and like she’s taking care of someone. This is a toxic match.”

Watching The Hills in 2006:

“Spencer and Heidi’s neighbor’s son Enzo is so adorable!”

Watching The Hills in 2019:

“Spencer and Heidi’s neighbor’s son Enzo is clearly a child actor.”

Watching The Hills in 2006:

“Justin Bobby is so dreamy!”

Watching The Hills in 2019:

“Justin Bobby is so problematic…ally dreamy.”

Watching The Hills in 2006:

“LAUREN WHY THE HELL DID YOU SKIP PARIS TO STAY WITH JASON OVER THE SUMMER, ARE YOU CRAZY?”

Watching The Hills in 2019:

“LAUREN WHY THE HELL DID YOU SKIP PARIS TO STAY WITH JASON OVER THE SUMMER, ARE YOU CRAZY?”

^Well, I guess some things never change!
